Tips for Buying Gifts for Children

Buying children’s gifts for birthdays, baby showers and the like can be challenging for some, but you can never go wrong with toys that provide new ways for children to learn and benefit from children’s songs. Whether the recipient is an infant or toddler, they will definitely derive joy from all types of musical baby toys.

Experts say that it’s best to keep children’s gifts simple and gender neutral—baby music CDs and baby DVD products are exactly that. Research shows that people, including parents, still tend to buy pink toys for girls and boyish-looking toys for boys. With Baby Genius products, you won’t have to worry about whether our products are best for a boy or girl. Either will completely enjoy our toys. If a child enjoys reading or being read to, they will love it when their parents read and sing along with musical baby books—which are also simple and gender-neutral. Every child can learn from children’s songs in so many ways—it’s difficult to beat the benefits of musical toys with any other type of toy.

Another principle that experts state is that bigger is not always better in the world of children’s toys, and bigger size toys are definitely not necessary. This is another principle that Baby Genius toys are immune to! It doesn’t matter to children what size their musical baby books are, and a baby DVD obviously comes in one size only. It’s the same with everything from dollhouses and play ovens to dolls and building blocks—size is irrelevant to the amount of fun the child will have with any of the abovementioned toys.

Basically, our baby music CDs and other musical baby toys make it easy for you to buy children the perfect gift that they will get tons of enjoyment from, as well as myriad developmental and educational benefits. You won’t have to think hard about how to best benefit the recipient—Baby Genius has done that for you!

Parenting Tips for the New Year

For new parents as well as those who’ve been around the block already, each year brings lots of growth, new challenges and exciting triumphs for your baby genius. With a little help from our experts, we came up with some tips for increasing accomplishments and maximizing development—especially through the use of songs. Whether you watch educational baby DVDs together or listen to one of our baby CD products, there are plenty of opportunities to implement some stellar parenting strategies.

Get involved with your baby genius at playtime! Play is so critical to a child’s development process, because it teaches them about the world and helps them build emotional, social and cognitive skills. When you play with your child, you can learn a lot about those skills as well as your child’s interests and talents and expand their creativity.

For example, singing along with a baby CD is an easy way to gauge your child’s talent for language, rhythm and music, as well as their coordination and motor skills if they dance and move along with the music.
Even something as simple as singing children’s songs to your infant or child will help to increase their vocabulary, boost phenomic skills and improve memory.

If you watch educational baby DVDs with your child, you can ask questions and learn about their temperaments and what appeals most to them. You questions and attention will encourage and provoke their curiosity and creativity.

Another important element of parenting that can be enhanced through the use of our educational baby toys is setting a good example. Your voice, tone, expressions, gestures and actions will teach your child ways to interact with other people and the world. You are perfectly situated to show your child ways to problem solve, compromise and take on physical challenges. This is an area where musical baby books can come into play—by reading to your child or singing along you can use tone and animated gestures to convey emotions.
